Facial care for men with oily skin I

As we have already mentioned on several occasions, most men have combination skin and a very considerable part also has oily skin.

Combination skin is still a hybrid between normal skin and oily skin, so as oily skin presents some skin characteristics, the type of facial care for combination skin is applicable to the one we discussed in this series of articles. for oily skin care.

In any case, facial care for oily skin cannot be the same, especially in men, as for normal or dry skin.

Oily skin is distinguished by its excess of sebum, a lot of shine and fortunately few wrinkles. However, the counterpart is the premature sagging that combination and oily skin usually presents.

Due to a lower number of wrinkles, it seems that oily skin does not age as quickly. If it is judged in this way, then we could say that it is so, however, if proper facial care for oily skin is not paid attention to, the aging process and the appearance of wrinkles, although it may appear later, It will appear much more suddenly, and the sensation of skin aging will be much more pronounced.

If facial care for oily skin is not adequate, the following problems may occur:

  • deep dehydration
  • Excess sebum, shine.
  • Premature sagging.
In this article we will focus on the first case, deep temporary dehydration and peeling of oily skin.


In the next two articles, we will focus on sections 2 and 3 above.

1. Oily dehydrated skin

It may seem strange that oily skin can suffer more or less temporary dehydration in its lower layers, but it is much more common than we think.

This manifests as redness and even scaling and is a sign that the skin is out of balance. The cause may lie in the type of facial hygiene that we are doing.

As we have already mentioned, men with oily skin tend to wash our faces more frequently to remove shine and sweat. And there is no problem in performing this action.

We always say that facial care always goes through a good cleaning and that we should never apply any gel or Moisturizing Cream without having cleaned the face before.

The problem therefore lies in the type of product that we may be using for the facial cleansing.. We must bear in mind that the skin of our face is 5 times thinner than that of our body. This means that the product we use to clean our faces must also be much more respectful.

We must pay attention that facial cleansing products do not contain sulfates and do not have a pH that is too high (pH 5.5 being ideal).

If we use a conventional bar soap or a soap that is too aggressive for our skin, apart from unbalancing it and causing the aforementioned redness and peeling, the skin will react to protect itself by generating even more sebum, that is, generating more oil, and creating a rebound effect. contrary to the desired

The first step is always facial cleansing

That is why we always say that to cleanse oily skin you have to do it with a product that is very respectful of the skin on our face.

It is important that you cleanse thoroughly to remove impurities, pollution and sweat, but you must do so without unbalancing the skin.

It is not easy to find in the market a face cleaner that meets all these requirements. We have developed natural skin-protecting ingredients such as organic Aleo Vera and organic chamomile that will help calm your skin and prevent it from becoming unbalanced.

Of course it's a sulfate-free facial cleanser formulated for men. It has a pH value so as not to destroy the natural protection barrier of your skin and keep it always healthy.

Cleanliness is the most important aspect of facial care, regardless of your skin type.

With other types of products, you have to be careful and not clean your face too much because they can be very aggressive.

Those of us who have oily skin, in summer we like to wash our faces more than twice a day, precisely to avoid shine. With our face cleaner Extra Gent's, we can wash our face as many times as we want, since we will keep it clean and purified, but at the same time, we will maintain its hydrolipidic mantle (its natural protection layer), so important to prevent external aggressions, and therefore premature aging .

How often should men wash their faces?

Men should wash their faces twice a day: every morning and every night. It is very important that we always wash our faces before applying our gel or facial moisturizer. Otherwise, if we apply the moisturizing gel or cream Without having washed our faces, we will reintroduce into our body the toxins that it has eliminated through the skin, along with the pollution and accumulated dirt.

Can I increase the frequency of facial washing if I have oily skin?

If you have oily skin, you can increase the frequency of facial cleansing without any problem. That is, if during the day you feel that due to sweat or excess oil secretion, your skin needs additional cleaning, there is no problem.
However, in this case you should be extremely careful with the type of facial cleanser you are using. It is very important that you use a sulfate-free facial cleanser with pH5 like our Extra Gent's, formulated only with soothing plant extracts such as Aloe Vera and organic Chamomile. It also has sea salt to remineralize your skin.
